About Us

The Brown Jug is a traditional family pub on Bath Road, Leckhampton where we focus on serving great pub food from fresh ingredients, using the best local suppliers.

Food is served seven days per week, lunch and dinner. Mondays to Saturdays we have specially priced Lunch Specials and a range of Ciabatta’s. Our Sunday Lunch is legendary and served from 12pm-6pm. Daily Specials are available.

Families are always welcome and we have a children’s menu or half portions on most of our dishes.

As our food is freshly prepared in our kitchen on a daily basis we can be very flexible, so you can always ask us if you have a special request or dietary requirement. A number of our dishes are suitable or can be adapted for plant-based, gluten free and dairy free diets.
Just ask a member of the team for guidance.

We also offer a variety of well-kept ales, ciders and wines.

We are proud of our small team of dedicated staff who work hard to provide a fantastic experience. Come down and enjoy our glorious courtyard garden, bring the dog, bring a friend and we look forward to welcoming you.
